Customs guide on Alaska Native Arts updated

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Alaska State Council on the Arts have updated their Customs Guide on Alaska Native Arts. The online guide helps artists, arts patrons, and retailers interpret the complex wildlife laws that affect international trade.

The guide lists wildlife materials commonly used in traditional Alaska Native art. A corresponding table of federal requirements enables residents, visitors, artists, and shops to identify appropriate gifts that may be legally carried home or shipped to various countries. The guide is a resource that answers many frequently asked questions about the legitimate use of various wildlife materials in artwork for sale and includes the most current wildlife law fact sheets available.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Alaska State Council on the Arts collaborated to update and provide this reference publication. See
